Delaware's Health Care Connection
The Health Care Connection (HCC) ensures access by uninsured individuals to primary care doctors, medical specialists, health promotion and disease prevention services; and helps with access to other health resources—including prescription programs, and laboratory and radiology services. HCC program staff are available to assist individuals with establishing a health care home, scheduling appointments, and removing barriers to obtaining healthcare and health promotion services. This program is operated by the state of Delaware.
